Bunny Ears Headband: How-To!

Make this simple headband to get in the Easter spirit! It's such a simple project that you and your kids will love hopping around in! 

What you'll need...
About 1/8 of a yard. 
{Any scraps you have will work fine!}
12 Gauge Floral Wire
Thin headband
pliers: optional
Aleene's No-Sew Fabric Glue: This specific one!
{Hot Glue works too!}
Step 1: Cut 1 inch wide strips of fabric.
 Step 2: Take the wire and mold an ear. Twist it at the bottom to hold it together. Extend the wire about 3 inches and make another ear. Twist at the bottom to hold that ear together. Now twist the wire at the opposite end until it breaks, or just cut with shears. 
 Step 3: Tie a knot at the bottom of 1 ear to hold it steady. Wrap the fabric around wire until fully covered. Add small dabs of glue about every other wrap. 
By the way... Aleene's No-Sew Fabric glue is my go to glue for any kind of fabric project. It's amazing! I always have it on hand and use it to make all of my fabric banners. I have tried other fabric glues and none of them work as well as this one does! It's just as good, if not better, than hot glue for this project! Especially if you don't feel like burning yourself. {But if you are anything like me, and spend way too much on crafts, there is also no reason to spend more money than necessary. If you have a hot glue gun, go with that.}
Step 4: Now line it up the ears on your headband. Wrap it all the way around making sure to wrap around the covered wire to hold it into place. Glue as you go as well! 
 When it's completely wrapped...it's done!
